I began my family research project with my father 10 years ago. He was a marvelous oral historian. Yet, we recognized the two fires that destroyed his parents' homes had also taken the pictures and records. I began contacting extended families trying to collect photographs that were lost to us. I have met some marvelous individuals over time that have shared pictures and memories, and I am grateful. After the death of my dad, I decided to continue the project and to that end, I now work primarily on my family surname. But with the wealth of information I have amassed, I am contributing to this website so that others, just like us, will have a tangible piece of family history.|
If you find a memorial I have created for a member of your family, please request a transfer of management, I will be glad to do so. Should you see an error, need to link a family member, send me an edit request.
My purpose is to link the generations, not to create quantity, rather quality. My goal is to provide family history footprints......
With help from Find A Grave members & their contacts, I am now a member of the Daughter's of the American Revolution through my maternal grandmother, Leno Kathryn Williams Poland. Thank you all so very much, it is an honor working with so many dedicated individuals who volunteer their time and effort to those of us so far away.

I took a photo of the grave of Chargles Hogue to fulfill your request. Unfortunately there was no name engraved on the vault.
The Brammerís are a closed knit family; my Brammer family that migrated from Virginia to Missouri is HUGE! Oral history is alive and well in rural Missouri and this is where I began my research knowing that Burgess was my Sixth Great Grandfather and fought in the revolutionary war along with his father. So I found him, his brothers and father in the DAR Database
John Brammer III
DAR Ancestor A013724
Children of John III at DAR
****No one has ever filed for DAR status under his daughters; Frances, Mary, or Sarah Brammer
Information about John III daughters and their husbands comes from Charles D. Brammerís research circa 1986 which was brought to a family reunion: Johnís son Edmund migrated to Lawrence County, Ohio which is where a lot of the family history was preserved and in this case written down. You can find much information in this county about this family (they even had publications titled ďThe Brammer BranchesĒ which you can find in libraries and local historical societies).
(HISTORY OF LAWRENCE COUNTY OHIO 1990 Edited by the Lawrence County Genealogical Society. Published by Walsworth Publishing ( Waynesville, NC: Don Mills, Inc., 1990) , p 56. Information supplied by Mary Brammer Jones)
b 1767 VA d 1822 s/o John Brammer III m 1787 VA Kanawha Co (now Cabell Co) WV MARY ANN LEE b 1770 VA d 1844 Windsor Twp. Law Co OH (sister of Rev. John Lee).
The great great grandfather of Edmund was THOMAS BRAMMER b 1605 in England (Will, 1670, Gloucester Co VA). Edmund's father was John Brammer III, so presumably his grandfather was John Brammer II and his great grandfather John Brammer I. His father, John III served with the Henry County VA Militia at Guilford Court House during the Revolutionary War. In 1802 Edmund sold a 250 tract of land in Patrick Co VA to his brother John, Jr., apparently in preparation for his move from Patrick Co. The membership roles of the Charity Primitive Baptist Church list Edmund for the last time in 1803. Edmund and his sons John and James appeared in the Charley Creek Section of then Kanawha (now Cabell ) Co VA (now WV) in 1807. Edmund and Mary Ann Lee came to Ohio in 1817 and settled first on Symmes Creek in Union Twp. Law Co., but soon moved to McKinney Creek where he died.
I couldn't attach the scanned document from Charles but if you leave an email I would be more then happy to send it along to you.

|Morgan||Frances Alse Brammer|
According to my family research, she was the daughter of John L BRAMMER III (1720-1813) and Mary Elizabeth BURGESS (1725-1810). This branch of the Brammer family has done a ton of research especially the descendants of Frances's brother Edmund Brammer (1767-1822), I descend from John through his other son Burgess.
Thought since you are a "Moon" you would want to know :)

I mistakenly put the photo of George's son's marker on his page. I have fixed that, but am not sure what section George is in so that I can replace his photo. Would you be willing to call Sunset to find out? I believe they will give that information to a relative. Then I can look through my backup photos by section. Thanks--and sorry!!

Are you interested in transfers of George, Harold, and Sophia? I am not related.
|Julie Whiteside Miller||RE: Clarence Mahan 39257479|
You're very welcome. He is buried just down from my Uncle. I just happened to be in the cemetery that day when I noticed your request. Glad to help.
|Ted R. McDuffee||Thomas Newton LAWRENCE|
Thomas was my maternal grandfather through Orabelle (Twin of Nora Dell). I have extensive information on this family, that has been garnered over some thirty plus years of research, and never have I seen the picture of Thomas that you posted.
His wife, Martha Ann BISHOP, had a sister, Sallie Belle BISHOP, who married James Allen MOON, is this your connection to the LAWRENCE/BISHOP families?
My initial question was, from what family source did this picture of Thomas Newton LAWRENCE come from?
Thanks ever so much for what you are doing...

You're so very welcome. He is buried right down from my Uncle (Albert Thornberry). Glad I could do it for you while I was visiting Kentucky. There are several Mahan's interred in the cemetery.
